Yes! By all means, celebrate and enjoy! This is that time of year - this and weddings and births and deaths and holy days - all are meant to open our hearts with others and transcend the ordinary together in joy and in grief.
It’s only when the occasion is tarnished by regrets from over-indulging and bad behavior that we question our choices.
So choose ahead - choose from your adult mind how far you are going to go - pick the number of drinks and plates of food you are going to enjoy and go for it! You have given yourself permission - and promise to fulfill your vision of the event 2 drinks? 10?
You choose the number and demonstrate your control to yourself. Keep your word and build your trust in yourself. Enlist a friend if you need to or write it on your hand for all to see.
